I think, down time of website is passed over, and website is up now (and at least; it seems stable).

I'm to close this bug ticket!

There are some possible partial solutions:

  • caching, so requests from bots won't waste CPU on rendering the pages
  • blocking spammer in the HTTP server: needs a more clever way than IP blocking, since they use botnets
  • making the Moin/WSGI/HTTP/etc deployment more efficient, so it can handle more spambots before getting DDoSed
  • make it harder for bots to find the wiki, by e.g. not making search engines find the standand Moin texts

I don't know the exact usage patterns of these spammers, these look ok for what my wiki gets.

Sam Geeraerts is doing what he can.



Perhaps we should revert to static html published by one person?

Our gNewSense website is some times down. When it's live it may be down for the next time. This will be a problem for viewers. I would like to know why this happens and how to solve it. Thank you !
